Hello Forum ! I'm new to this site and after reading for the past few days, I have questions I didn't find earlier here.
I have just got a '03 Ranger that has not been treated very well but, the price was right so I took it on as a project. I did get it to run after cleaning a flooding carburetor, replacing the spark plug, and changing the oil. My first question, the fuel pump was 'rigged' with a toggle switch by the man I got the Ranger from. The pump sounds like it doesn't stop after filling the carb. and of course, I leave it on to keep it running. Will this hurt anything the way it's wired up?
Next, when I decide to cut it off after a short ride, I turn the key to OFF, and nothing. I had to lift the seat and pull the plug wire.
Could this be a ground wire to ignition or bad switch ?
One other thing, won't go into high gear. Just grinds. Low and reverse seems OK .
Thanks , in advance, for any clues with this.
